Students will evaluate and analyze the interview data collected in week 4 from a sociological perspective. Readings have been made available on qualitative interview analysis. Please read this material if you have not taken a course in research methods. Students must evaluate the relationship dynamics as well as specific problems/issues that the couple or family interviewed in week 4 have faced or are currently facing. Since each interview is different, the types of sociological concepts that are applicable will also be different. Examples of concepts to incorporate include: courtship patterns, communication in the relationship/family, conflict resolution strategies, family and/or gendered roles, balancing work and family, coping with stress, etc. Recall that concepts are the bolded terms in your textbook. Select the terms that best speak to the sociological themes and patterns found in your qualitative interview data. While writing the essay, be sure to BOLD the concepts that are introduced and make sure each term is properly defined and/or explained before applying it to examples.
Students must also utilize the textbook and 3-4 additional peer reviewed journal articles (Jstor.org is recommended) to address these relationship dynamics and issues from a sociological perspective and how these sociological themes can be applied to couples and/or families more broadly in society. Finally, students should incorporate the Christian worldview by incorporating the Biblical perspective by way of solutions and/or guidance. Papers must be at least 5-7 pages (not including title and references) and in APA format.
